“Everybody is happy here in Egypt because after 28 years the dream of going back to the world stage has come to pass, we did not sleep all night and that should explain the sought of happiness we find ourselves in. This will be our third time just like Ghana, Nigeria and Cameroon,” she stated.
When quizzed on whether they anticipated of qualifying she said no and that they rather taught Ghana would rather qualify.
“We were playing the qualifiers but we knew Ghana were the favorites to come out successful. We concentrated on each match at a time and that did the trick for us, i must also add that we all in Egypt keenly followed the Ghana/Uganda game in Kampala and it was clear that Ghana were cheated and robbed,” she concluded.
